    At least Google have been brave enough to revisit the keyboard layout for their netbooks (shame they’re Atom based, I’ll wait for the Zacate one!). Bye bye caps lock (although the search key is an odd idea, why not move control back there and have search in the lower-left, where you won’t accidentally hit it). Nice spacing on the function keys too.

    If that Chrome netbook uses Atom and not some ARM thinger, as some rumors suggested, I’m going to stab my ear drums with golf tees until my spinal fluid leaks out. At least they’re supposed to require SSDs, but ugh, Atom…that’s a good way to ruin a good idea.

    And btw, as cool as ninjas are, prohibition was repealed December 5th. That’s just *slightly* more important. :p

      idk man. atom’s awesome. intel keeps saying that it’s WAY faster than arm chips. I don’t see it, but intel keeps saying it.

        Linpack results are pretty interesting when comparing Atom to any of the current high-end smartphone SoCs out there.

        From the reports I seen, arm get you half the performance but save you ~1.5 watt peak and is ~$10 cheaper system wide. Maybe builder found that extra $10 and 1.5watt peak consumption to be a good trade off for the extra performance?
        The performance delta get insanely big if you compare 128bit float SSE3 code… But then I’m not sure chrome OS use any of that.

      Yes and you know who got prohibition repealed? Ninjas.

        I suppose Drunken Master does lend that possibility some merit.

          Drunken masteries are styles/forms of Kung-Fu, which is Chinese.

          I doubt Ninjas would side with them, unless of course they were paid well.
